She travelled to Syria with her 12-year-old son to join ISIS in 2013. "I do not have any information that would substantiate that report but that could change and we are looking into this" Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman, told the Guardian. In the 90's, she played in the all-woman band Krunch.

Without being able to collect evidence on the ground it's impossible to confirm her death, but The Sun reported that the Central Intelligence Agency had told United Kingdom counterparts that Jones was killed by a Predator drone strike close to the Syria-Iraq border back in June.

Jone's jihadi husband, Junaid Hussain, was killed in a 2015 drone strike.

Asked about reports Jones' son was killed in the strike, Maj Gen Chapman added: "It is a hard one because under the UN Charters he is under the age of what we would classify as a soldier".

Given her penchant for encouraging terror attacks in the West, she was nicknamed Mrs Terror. She gradually became a key recruiter for ISIS and soon topped the US kill-list.

The world's most wanted female terrorist was recently killed by a U.S. drone in Syria.

In Raqqa, Jones adopted the nom de guerre Umma Hussain al Britani and devoted herself to Isis, using multiple Twitter handles to lure potential recruits to Syria and to encourage sympathisers to carry out attacks in their home countries.

She also posted comments such as: "You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on the railings at Raqqa".

Officials said conditions on the ground prevent them from knowing for certain if Jones is dead, but her social media activity has been silent for months.

Maj. Gen. Chip Chapman, the former head of counterterrorism at the Ministry of Defense, told Press Association that under the U.N. Charter Jones's son was too young to be classified as a soldier.
